North Dakota Governor Friday issued statewide masking authorization as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.
The government. Doug Borghum’s office (right) has released a series of mitigation measures that will take effect on Monday.
Face coverings will now be required in indoor works and indoor public spaces, as well as outdoor public spaces where physical spacing is not possible.
An order signed by interim state health officer Dirk Wilcke includes exceptions for children under the age of five, individuals with a health or mental condition or disability that makes wearing a mask unreasonable, and religious services.
“The most effective weapon against COVID-19 is wearing a mask,” Wilk said in a statement.. “This is a simple, yet important tool in helping to protect our loved ones and slowing the spread.
The order came days after the North Dakota Nurses Association called for statewide masking authorization and other public health measures..
Burgum has also signed an executive order that limits capacity of all bars and restaurants by 50 percent – and not to exceed 150 customers.. Food service establishments must be closed to personal service between 10 am. M. And 4 p. M. However, take-out, passenger and delivery options are allowed.
The governor has also suspended all high school winter sports and other school extracurricular activities from kindergarten through December. 14. The pause in activities aims to keep cases low enough to allow schools to remain open for personalized learning with masks and physical distancing.
The North Dakota governor also warned against trying to limit gatherings to their immediate family group during the holiday season.
“We believe in North Dakota. We believe in the power of individual responsibility. And we need individual responsibility now more than ever to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The United States is seeing a rise in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, while deaths have also risen.

On Saturday, there were 10,486 active positive cases in the state, according to the North Dakota Department of Health. In total, 60,602 people have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak began.
The sharp increase in the number of cases has resulted in a shortage of healthcare workers and a shortage of hospital beds for COVID-19 patients.
Burgum took an unusual step on Monday and announced that healthcare workers with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic can continue to work in coronavirus units..
